I had ordered a mixed case from this grower..
and had been generally disapointment with
all of them..especially after the hype
and the prizes they had won.It was more in
desperation that I decided to try the
'final' bottle of the six...
Spaghetti Bolognese can be like 'Britney Spears'...
a difficult companion at the best of times.
I was going to leave the bottle for a few years...
but fate took my hand..
I'd better stop here..this is getting to poetic.
OK..back to the wine
Maibachfarm Dernauer Schieferlay
Smoke and dark cherries on the nose...no aggressiveness I had noted in the other wines....sweet opening mouthfull..nicely structured...soft and delicate..went down well..flowery style with a well-balanced bench of fruit.
Very good..and complimented 'Britney' as well as could be expected.
